I thought a set of 6 would mean 6 bath towels, 6 hand towels and 6 wash cloths - this is not the case. There are only 6 pieces of cloth to this item. So, the value I expected wasn't entirely there. A product description like "set" has different meaning to American consumers. The cloth is absorbent and thicker than a cheaper towel that I had been using at the Y. Product arrived promptly.
